Student Safety Tips

Here are a few things to do to take charge of your personal safety and the safety of your friends:

  • Never leave your drink unattended. If you accidentally leave it somewhere, throw it out. Do not provide an opportunity for someone to put something in your drink.
  • Do not accept drinks from someone that has been opened or been mixed by someone other than a trusted friend.
  • If you choose to drink alcoholic beverages, DO NOT DRINK IN EXCESS.
  • If you are with a friend who is passed out, vomiting, or semi-responsive, take charge of their personal safety. Keep a close watch on them, and if necessary, get the emergency medical care that they need.
  • If you are drinking, NEVER take a chance on driving a vehicle. Call a taxi company, SAFERIDE, UBER/Lyft, or a sober friend.
  • Take personal responsibility to keep your friends safe and ensure that they get home. You can be the person who steps up to be their hero for the night.
